Anisha Daxini

Anisha Daxini, MD

Anisha was born and raised in India and attended medical school at J.J.M. Medical College, India. After medical school, she worked as a regional tuberculosis officer in a Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program serving primarily the rural and medically underserved population with the vision of achieving “TB free India.” While there, she played a key role in designing and developing a project to create awareness and prevention strategies for TB/HIV/AIDS patients and fostered her interest in internal medicine, patient care, global health and leadership.

She immigrated to the U.S. in 2017 and has grown to love her adopted city, Philadelphia. She describes her time at Nazareth as enjoyable and enriching. The high incidence of preventable chronic illnesses in her patients led to the discovery of her new love, “Lifestyle Medicine.” She feels honored to be chosen as the PiT “Global Alliance Liaison” in American College of Lifestyle Medicine (2018-2019) to represent the U.S. and is currently working on developing the “Positive psychology Module for Lifestyle Medicine residency curriculum.”

Outside of work, she likes to hike, do yoga, run on the Schuylkill banks and listen to music. She recently checked off skydiving from her bucket list and is learning the Ukulele.

Joshua Kuhl

Joshua Kuhl, MD

I was born and raised in the first state, Delaware, where I remained through college, majoring in biology and psychology at the University of Delaware. Afterward I traveled south where I attended Eastern Virginia Medical School in Virginia to earn my medical degree. From there, I headed north to Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health in New York where I received my accelerated master of public health degree in epidemiology.

Now in Philadelphia, I am enjoying the blend of urban and suburban life, and the benefits of training at a community hospital, where I am preparing for a career as a hospitalist. In what spare time residency affords me, I enjoy weightlifting and riding motorcycles.

Favorite quote: “Think lightly of yourself and deeply of the world,” by Miyamoto Musashi.

Sheharyar Minhas, MD

Medical School: Saint Georges University
Career Plans: Cardiology

I was born in Pakistan and I moved to the U.S. at age 11. I graduated summa cum laude from Christian Brothers University in Memphis where I also served as a President of Alpha Chi National Honors Society. I was honored to be selected into the Pediatric Oncology Education Program at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. During that time my interest in academic research developed.

I have published several research papers and presented at regional and national level. I am interested in pursuing cardiology fellowship and working in an academic center. I also have a passion in public health and health care policy.

During my intern year I met love of my life. My wife is from Little Rock, Arkansas. Outside of medicine, I enjoy exploring world airlines and traveling around the world. I flew over 75,000 miles last year. I love building LEGO modular sets and I have a dedicated room for my Lego City. Starbucks is my passion and I have rarely missed my venti mocha light frappuccino since I was in high school. My biggest influence in life is my mother, and my family and God are everything to me.
